REDDING, Calif. — American Idol finalist and inspirational singer/songwriter Rachel Hale released her new single “Rainbow” today across all streaming platforms.


Co-written with Vince Scheuerman and produced by Jonathan Crone, the same team behind Rachel’s hit 2021 single “Promised Land,” inspiration for the song came from a journal entry Rachel wrote in 2015.

“‘Rainbow’ was inspired by a dream placed in my heart. I hope listeners are inspired to make their own dreams come alive and allow their true colors to shine,” said Rachel. “Before sitting down to write, I prayed for a song that would inspire millions of people, and asked God ‘what do people need to hear?’ I then heard God say, ‘they need hope, point them to me.’”

In coordination with the release, Rachel has partnered with Destination Imagination, a global nonprofit organization that empowers young people to be innovative and creative through STEAM programs. Rachel will perform “Rainbow” live at Destination Imagination’s 2022 Global Finals at Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City, Missouri, on May 21.

Originally from Prescott, Arkansas, Rachel gained international recognition in 2013 as a Top 20 finalist in American Idol season 12. Before competing on American Idol, Rachel joined multiple Grammy Award-winner Cece Winan’s Nashville Life Church, where she led worship, as well as wrote and performed on the Church’s debut album, Shine On Us.

She also co-wrote the hit song “Firm Foundation,” which became the title track for the album recorded by gospel trio Selah that went on to win Inspirational Album Of The Year at the 51st Dove Awards.


Rachel Hale gained international recognition in 2013 as a Top 20 finalist in American Idol season 12. She has shared the stage with music legends Peter Frampton and Ricky Skaggs, and opened for stars including Tracy Byrd, Joe Nichols, Joe Diffie and Chris Cagle. She is currently based in Redding, California.
